As far as getting the best picture quality you can, Just download the file you'd like to run, play it, and see if it measures up. I've found quite a few small files I've downloaded here have surprisingly good resolution. If the movies are PD, you should be able to do whatever you want with them. You might run into a little trouble showing these films outside, depending on where you live, as they might be considered a distraction to passing drivers, at which the local cops may come by and tell you to cool it. You may want to show your movies inside. I remember a Straw Hat Pizza Palace that use to show movies inside their restaurant back in the 70's. It was my favorite hang-out when I was a kid. Hope I was helpful.

Guyzilla, my wife and I hung out at VIP Pizza in State College PA many years ago. Same thing: little movie cartridges, and patrons would just pick and choose among them. Not all PD, either, but a lot of fun.

"My" pizza joint showed mostly silents released by Blackhawk Films. Lots of Arbuckle, Chaplin, and Lloyd. It was the place to go if you dug silent movies on Super8 film loops.
